Private Tutoring

Founder and owner of the Acorns Nursery and Forest School, Janet Irwin, also offers private tuition (in person or online) to children of all abilities. With her wealth of previous experience and qualifications, alongside her relaxed approach and passion to support children in achieving their goals, Janet offers a warm and fun-filled tutoring service, to help bring a real joy to learning.


Janet caters for children who need extra support with their reading and writing skills; those who are being home tutored; those who are preparing for exams to move to the private sector; and those taking exams such as Common Entrance, GCSE, and A Levels. Janet also teaches adults with a wide variety of requirements. Her specialities lie in:

- English (reading, essay writing, comprehension, grammar, spelling and spoken word)

- English as a foreign language (ideal for people who are new to the English language and seeking structured guidance)

- Maths (all ages and stages)

- French (all ages and stages)

Janet also uses her wealth of specialist knowledge and experience to support and advise parents who are unsure about the next step for their child. Whether you are considering schools in the local area or alternative schooling methods, get in touch for advice and assessment of your child's needs to make the next step.

"Mrs Irwin truly nurtures every individual student and works uniquely to their abilities. The help I received from her in primary school as well as in preparation for scholarship exams at age 13 was totally invaluable and I believe I wouldn't have achieved what I have today without her help. I think anybody who is lucky enough to receive tuition from her will flourish and reach their full potential. I am very grateful to Mrs Irwin for everything she did for me." - Nell Summers
